Budweiser releases new beer based on George Washington's handwritten recipe

Budweiser launches beer using recipe written by George Washington with a portion of the proceeds going to Folds of Honor.

A beer once called “America,” just got a lot more patriotic.

Budweiser has revealed its newest addition to the Reserve Collection – a Freedom Reserve Red Lager inspired by a recipe handwritten by first president George Washington.

According to the press release, George Washington hand-penned the recipe “To Make Small Beer” in his personal military journal, dating back to 1757.
